Ring-Necked Pheasants


The female pheasant builds a ground nest and has one brood a year.  The nests are made in April or May in dried grasses, sedge, hay, or grain stubble (the short, stiff stalks of grain or hay remaining on a field after harvesting).  The eggs number from eight to ten, and olive brown.  They are incubated for 23-25 days, fledged (cared for until ready to fly) from 11-12 days. 


Pheasants stay year round and do not migrate.  They survive on insects, seeds, and fruit and their numbers fluctuate from year to year depending on weather and food availability.
